Happy New Year and welcome back!

This week’s assembly started by introducing Janus, the Roman God of beginnings, gates, transitions, time, doorways, passages and endings. January is named after Janus. In the assembly we considered New Year’s Eve traditions and the art of making New Year’s resolutions. We identified the most common ones, the most extreme ones and considered if only 8% of us actually manage to keep resolutions by the end of the year, is it worth doing? Maybe we should make small changes every day to grow and develop and by the end of the year we would have made the difference we want to make? The key Team Rushden values that we thought about were being smart in appearance and attitude, about being respectful about ourselves, others and the environment and being resilient.
